Garmin just launched rolling out a new software upgrade for their smartwatches, introducing some fantastic features. FNIX 7 Series, Epix (Gen 2), and Instinct 2 series will be qualified to receive this update and its new features, in accordance with the company’s announcement . Updates will also soon be available for other products like the Edge 1040 series and Forerunner 945 LTE.
The increased battery life of the aforementioned Garmin smartwatches is the main improvement. According to the manufacturer, the SatIQ will automatically activate multi-band GPS when it is most necessary, such as in tight gorges or densely populated urban areas with tall buildings, and deactivate it when no longer required. Making sure athletes make the most of their batteries is the aim.
Additionally, when they are sleeping, athletes and normal Garmin smartwatch customers can check their heart rate variability (HRV) levels. They might gain a better understanding of their health and sleep patterns thanks to the function.
